Purple is

Shellymkeller inspired me with her post “What is Red?” I thought I would try something similar with the color purple.

Purple is the candle beside my bathtub.
Calming me with every breath.
Filling the room with the scent of lavender.

Purple is the threads on my Peruvian blanket.
Warming me on the couch.
Reminding me of fond traveling memories.

Purple is the wildflowers in Spring named after me.
Emerging after the harsh Winter.
Growing life and beauty.

Purple is the onion I cook with.
Adding flavor to delicious dishes.
Creating a comforting and salivating smell in the room.

Purple is the sweater I wear.
Clothing me in soft material.
Keeping me warm.

  1. Beautiful! You took a simple thing, a color, and wrote a wonderful poem that shows the reader who you are as a writer (poet:). I love this idea. Thank you for the idea and the post.

  2. Purple is my favorite color! I especially loved your line: Purple is the wildflowers in Spring named after me. Of course, they are named for YOU:) You created lots of great images here. Purple is always the right choice.
